AWS SDK Version 3 for .NET
API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Inserts or deletes ActivatedRule objects in a WebACL. Each Rule identifies web requests that you want to allow, block, or count. When you update a WebACL, you specify the following values:

To create and configure a WebACL, perform the following steps:

  1. Create and update the predicates that you want to include in Rules. For more information, see CreateByteMatchSet, UpdateByteMatchSet, CreateIPSet, UpdateIPSet, CreateSqlInjectionMatchSet, and UpdateSqlInjectionMatchSet.

  2. Create and update the Rules that you want to include in the WebACL. For more information, see CreateRule and UpdateRule.

  3. Create a WebACL. See CreateWebACL.

  4. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateWebACL request.

  5. Submit an UpdateWebACL request to specify the Rules that you want to include in the WebACL, to specify the default action, and to associate the WebACL with a CloudFront distribution.

Be aware that if you try to add a RATE_BASED rule to a web ACL without setting the rule type when first creating the rule, the UpdateWebACL request will fail because the request tries to add a REGULAR rule (the default rule type) with the specified ID, which does not exist.

For more information about how to use the AWS WAF API to allow or block HTTP requests, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide.

Note:

For PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to UpdateWebACLAsync.

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
WAFInternalErrorException The operation failed because of a system problem, even though the request was valid. Retry your request.
WAFInvalidAccountException The operation failed because you tried to create, update, or delete an object by using an invalid account identifier.
WAFInvalidOperationException The operation failed because there was nothing to do. For example: You tried to remove a Rule from a WebACL, but the Rule isn't in the specified WebACL. You tried to remove an IP address from an IPSet, but the IP address isn't in the specified IPSet. You tried to remove a ByteMatchTuple from a ByteMatchSet, but the ByteMatchTuple isn't in the specified WebACL. You tried to add a Rule to a WebACL, but the Rule already exists in the specified WebACL. You tried to add an IP address to an IPSet, but the IP address already exists in the specified IPSet. You tried to add a ByteMatchTuple to a ByteMatchSet, but the ByteMatchTuple already exists in the specified WebACL.
WAFInvalidParameterException The operation failed because AWS WAF didn't recognize a parameter in the request. For example: You specified an invalid parameter name. You specified an invalid value. You tried to update an object (ByteMatchSet, IPSet, Rule, or WebACL) using an action other than INSERT or DELETE. You tried to create a WebACL with a DefaultActionType other than ALLOW, BLOCK, or COUNT. You tried to create a RateBasedRule with a RateKey value other than IP. You tried to update a WebACL with a WafActionType other than ALLOW, BLOCK, or COUNT. You tried to update a ByteMatchSet with a FieldToMatchType other than HEADER, QUERY_STRING, or URI. You tried to update a ByteMatchSet with a Field of HEADER but no value for Data. Your request references an ARN that is malformed, or corresponds to a resource with which a web ACL cannot be associated.
WAFLimitsExceededException The operation exceeds a resource limit, for example, the maximum number of WebACL objects that you can create for an AWS account. For more information, see Limits in the AWS WAF Developer Guide.
WAFNonexistentContainerException The operation failed because you tried to add an object to or delete an object from another object that doesn't exist. For example: You tried to add a Rule to or delete a Rule from a WebACL that doesn't exist. You tried to add a ByteMatchSet to or delete a ByteMatchSet from a Rule that doesn't exist. You tried to add an IP address to or delete an IP address from an IPSet that doesn't exist. You tried to add a ByteMatchTuple to or delete a ByteMatchTuple from a ByteMatchSet that doesn't exist.
WAFNonexistentItemException The operation failed because the referenced object doesn't exist.
WAFReferencedItemException The operation failed because you tried to delete an object that is still in use. For example: You tried to delete a ByteMatchSet that is still referenced by a Rule. You tried to delete a Rule that is still referenced by a WebACL.
WAFStaleDataException The operation failed because you tried to create, update, or delete an object by using a change token that has already been used.

Examples

The following example deletes an ActivatedRule object in a WebACL with the ID webacl-1472061481310.

To update a Web ACL


var response = client.UpdateWebACL(new UpdateWebACLRequest 
{
    ChangeToken = "abcd12f2-46da-4fdb-b8d5-fbd4c466928f",
    DefaultAction = new WafAction { Type = "ALLOW" },
    Updates = new List {
        new WebACLUpdate {
            Action = "DELETE",
            ActivatedRule = new ActivatedRule {
                Action = new WafAction { Type = "ALLOW" },
                Priority = 1,
                RuleId = "WAFRule-1-Example"
            }
        }
    },
    WebACLId = "webacl-1472061481310"
});

string changeToken = response.ChangeToken;
